I am seriously considering selling my practially new Mazzer Mini E
and picking up a couple of 200 - 250 dollar grinders. One for me (to
replace my mazzer) and one for a friend, as a gift, that has been using a
whirly blade for a long time and really loves coffee and my home roasts.
I occassionally do espresso, but mostly do FP and Drip. From what I
have been reading on the CoffeeGeek forums, it looks like a SMP or a Baratza
Virtuoso would work great from espresso to drip.
My friend is also an older gentleman and I want something easy for
him to adjust the grind with so I have avoided the Rocky series of grinders
because I hear they can be a little cumbersome to adjust the grind. Correct
me if I am wrong here.
Also if I am not mistaken, the SMP, Virtuoso, and Rocky are all very
similiar in grind consistency and ability to produce from espresso to drip.
